Author of Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence, psychiatrist Dr. Anna Lembke joins me this week to talk about pleasure, pain, dopamine, and the brain! This is a fantastic episode. Dr. Anna explains how our brains are constantly trying to maintain a state of homeostasis—amid the relentless seesaw between pleasure and pain. The consequences of our actions will be felt on this seesaw; she tells us how we can manage the back and forth, in order to try and find balance in our lives.
